Girl Jumping HKDSummer is the time for kids to get up, get out and grow. But for some kids, exposure to activities that stimulate the body and mind ends with the school year. In fact, research shows that kids are prone to gain weight and fall behind in studies. On April 29th, the Y will celebrate Healthy Kids Day®, our national initiative to improve the health and well-being of kids.

Healthy Kids Day is the day for kids to charge into a summer full of activities – from sports and camping to learning and expressing themselves – that will keep them growing and achieving. Spend time together with the Y on Healthy Kids Day for lots of active play and ideas for the whole family to feel stronger and live healthier. Be sure to have kids bring a well-loved stuffed animal or doll for the UPMC Hamot “hospital” station. We’ll have lots of giveaways, including a one-year family membership and new bikes and helmets up for grabs courtesy of Wellsville.

Wear comfortable clothes and sneakers. Don’t forget the stuffed animal/doll!

Healthy Kids Day is free and open to the public.

Healthy Kids Day is generously supported by UPMC Hamot, UPMC Health Plan, Happi 92.7, Wellsville, Sam’s Club, Dick’s Sporting Goods, and Hertel & Brown Physical and Aquatic Therapy.

Safety Around Water @ Eastside Family Y, Glenwood Park Y, Downtown Y

Drowning can happen nearly anywhere with standing water. But, as a parent or
caregiver, you can’t keep your kids sidelined. You need to equip your children with
the tools they need to be confident in and around water so they don’t lose out
on the health benefits of exercise, the opportunities to bond with family and
friends and the sense of accomplishment when they learn new skills.

Teaching children how to be safe around water is not a luxury; it is a necessity.
The YMCA’s Safety Around Water program can help you make sure they learn
essential water safety skills, which can open up a world of possibilities for them.

Safety Around Water is a 4-session course teaches kids water safety and basic swimming
skills that help reduce the risk of drowning and builds confidence in and around water.

A typical session includes:

  • Exercises to help kids adjust to being
    in water
  • Instruction in “Jump, Push, Turn, Grab” and “Swim, Float, Swim,” two skill sets kids can use if they unexpectedly find themselves in the water
  • Specific safety topics like what to do
    if you see someone in the water who needs help
  • Fun activities that reinforce skills

Safety Around Water is free to participants. It is open to anyone in the community who wants their children to learn how to be safe in and around water.

WHEN: May 22-26, 5:30-7:30 p.m.
